I am experimenting with making fondant cake these days and I am always looking for something to put in the middle (to make it more of a dessert and less caky (dry, can be eaten by hand, that kinda thing). I wanted to ask if anyone have tried using cheesecake as "filling" ? the deal would be; cake (5 cm) cheesecake/filling (3-4 cm) cake (2 - 3 cm) + buttercream and fondant. I biult a sort of moat of cake around the fillng so that the cake does not fall and spill.
I am pretty sure it can be done, but this leads me to my actual question: I have seen a couple of different takes on the cheesecake on youtube and some of them are baked, some of them are not. They come out looking somewhat simular but what is the difference? is the baked one perhaps more durable? is the non-baked one perheps better tasting?
thanks : D
